Crowds that skipped the ’64 Worlds Fair in order to see the thirty-fifth MLB All-Star Game were treated to one of the best games of all time.
While sports pundits whine about how the All-Star Game has become a joke and broadcasters report lower and lower viewership, match-ups like the ’64 contest remain a shining beacon of what the game could be.
The big names like Willie Mays, Mickey Mantle and Roberto Clemente showed up to play (with Mays even laying out for a hard-hit ball).
In the end it came down to a bottom of the ninth two-out, two-strike home run to decide the game, putting the “classic” in Midsummer Classic.
